UPDATE: This survey is now closed.
Queenstown Lakes District Council have teamed up with the Three Lakes Cultural Trust to develop an arts, culture and heritage strategy for our district with the help of the local community.
A well-informed strategy will help set a shared vision and commitment to arts, culture and heritage in the Queenstown Lakes District. It will guide what should be preserved, maintained, celebrated, and will outline a roadmap of what we need to do to achieve this.
Recently, we captured valuable input from the local community during six district-wide hui. If you couldn’t make it to a hui or if you have more to say, it’s not too late. There is still time to join the conversation and let us know what arts, culture and heritage mean to you.
No matter your level of involvement in the arts, culture or heritage scene, we want to hear from all the different voices across the district. Have your say, and tell your friends to have theirs. Together, let’s build a strategy for our district that accurately reflects our diverse community.
Have your say by 5pm, Sunday 30 July 2023.
A big thank you to our talented visual scribe, Rhiannon James, who came to each of our recent hui and visually recorded the voices and kōrero of our community. You can view her beautiful visual representation of those conversations here.
Here is the timeline we’re working to until the strategy is presented to Council for adoption.
